MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK is to feature stories where some type of tech has outlived its time and yet, during the course of the story, it discovers a new purpose or is used in a new, purposeful way. This theme is inspired by the Opportunity rover, which functioned long past its prime. As an example, we want stories that would take the rather sad fate of Opportunity and give it new life—a new, useful purpose—when we reach Mars, whether it be as a repaired resource for a colony or a critical piece of equipment used by spacecraft crash survivors or whatever. Submissions do NOT need to feature the Opportunity rover; in fact, we will likely only include one or two stories involving Opportunity. Submissions also do NOT need to be set in the future or include any kind of sentient tech. Stories featuring more interesting outdated technologies and twists on the resurgent use of those technologies will receive more attention than those with more standard tech. So be creative and come up with an unusual and unexpected use of an outdated technology. We are looking for a range of tones, from humorous all the way up to dark.
